A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more piglets to breed in order to sell when they gain weight.

Keng's story

Keng, 50, is married and resides with her husband and four children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. Keng has been involved in an agricultural business for over 20 years. She has extensive experience and is successful in her business. She is involved in growing rice and breeding livestock.

Her husband has been working as a carpenter for over 8 years to generate income to feed the family. Keng wants to improve her family's living conditions and support her children's education until they finish college. With this goal in mind, Keng is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to purchase more piglets to breed in order to sell when they gain weight. By doing so, she will generate extra income to support the family.

In the future, she would like to expand her husband's carpentry business by hiring more people to help her husband manufacture more furniture to sell to his clients. Moreover, she plans to renew her house and decorate the interior to be more attractive and comfortable.
